Alexis Tsipras Today

Mr. Tsipras makes clear that he expects Europe in general and Germany in particular to make concessions on Greece’s crushing debt. In an interview in his starkly modern office at Syriza’s modest headquarters recently, he waved aside the perception that he would threaten default, saying it was in everyone’s best interest to negotiate a deal.

“Let’s assume I owe you a million dollars,” he said. “You know you have two options: a) to give me the chance to have some income so I can pay you back, even 50 percent of it, or, b) let me lose everything, go bankrupt, and you get nothing back. What would you choose?”

Ο υπηρετεί το 99% των πολιτών που φορολογούνται. O κ. Σαμαράς νοιάζεται για το 1% των υψηλών εισοδημάτων. 


#Syriza serves 99 % of citizens [who] are taxed. Samaras cares about [the] 1% of high income.
